    Because more people play the console version?

    PC games have more bugs. Dozens of graphics cards, drivers, XP vs Vista. It has to work well on all of them.

    That sucks, I was really looking forward to this game. I don't own a X360 or PS3, so PC was my only option. A real disappointment.

    Its because of piracy. PC piracy can eat into console game sales.
    I foresee most PC ports being delayed to maximize sales.

    Yes, but in this case, DMC4 is being developed alongside the console counterparts. Unlike DMC3 and RE4 which were haphazardly ported over later.

    And the other way. HL2 on the PC = WIN! HL2 on Xbox = FAIL!

    Agree here too.

    At least it is being released, but expect the hardware requirements to be high..
